Following the seminar, participants will engage in a hands-on identification session  where they will learn  to  recognise  and  differentiate  the  various  characteristics  used  to  identify  fungi  in  the  field, using specimens and other resources. The importance of fungi conservation will also be discussed in the context of local ecosystems and environmental issues.

Project Hindmarsh 2018

Contact: Jonathan Starks
Location: Kaniva
planting weekend for 2018

Project Hindmarsh heads to Kaniva in 2018 for our annual planting extravaganza.

The planting weekend will be held on 6th to 8th July 2017 and hosted out of the Kaniva Scout Hall, Dungey Park, Kaniva. The Kaniva Caravan Park is directly behind, and the whole areas will resemble a tent city during the weekend when planters converge on the area!

This year marks our 21st planting weekend. We are revegetating two sites on a property adjoining Tatiara Creek at Dinyarrak, near the SA border. The sites are an interesting mix of Buloke/ Grey Box woodland, Black Box swamp, creekline and Yellow Gum woodland, with a history of stock grazing.
